As pledged at the January Presidential election campaign, General Elections should be held when the 100-days programme was concluded, the United National Party (UNP) said today.

UNP General Secretary and Minister Kabir Hashim said their party was prepared to face an election and added the UNP was committed to hold the elections as pledged.

“It would be better if we are able to go for the election under a reformed and new election system. But the election should be held with or without the reforms of the election system. Those who demand the delay of the election only want to take time and cover-up their misdemeanors and corruption,” he told a news conference held at Sirikotha today.         
 
He said the present government was a National Unity Government but not a UNP government.

“If the election was not held as promised, we would take it to the streets demanding the elections,” he said.(DS & LP)

    Within the first 40 days the UNP has dug a nice big hole. All the votes have to do is bury you. Easy!

    Is that the only pledge that the UNP is keen to pursue. How many of the 100 day pledges has the government fulfilled so far? Public are content

    Without fulfilling election pledges do you expect to get votes from the people?

    As promised in the election manifesto, parliament must be dissolved at the end of 100 days and hope President would strictly follow this, irrespective what the SLFP members say.

    Get rid of your Foreign Minster if you want to win the next election. If not my prediction is even Ranil will lose his seat.
